LOGAN -- Harbor Freight Tools, the nation's largest discount tool retailer, today announced the opening of their newest store located at 17 East, 1400 North, in Logan.
"We are very excited to be opening the fifth Harbor Freight Tools store in the state of Utah, and delighted by the warm welcome the Logan community has shown us," said Eric Smidt, President of Harbor Freight Tools. "Harbor Freight continues to grow significantly by consistently earning our customers' business each and every day. We do that with superior customer service and by offering over 7,000 high quality tools in air and power, automotive, home and shop, at ridiculously low prices."
On Thursday, July 28, at 11 a.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce will be immediately followed by a donation to Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) of more than $1000.00 in much needed tools and supplies. On Saturday, July 30, doors open at 8:00 a.m. for Harbor Freight Logan's special Grand Opening Sale, with select merchandise discounted as much as 70 percent.
"The Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to welcome Harbor Freight Tools to the Logan area business community," said Sandy Emile, CEO and President, Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce. "We look forward to having another great place for the members of our construction related industries to find the necessary products they need to conduct business."
Harbor Freight's donation to Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) will be immediately put to use by volunteers building and framing the fourteenth Habitat home in Cache Valley. This home will benefit a single mother and her three children in Hyrum.
"We are very grateful to Harbor Freight Tools for their generosity," said Lucas Martin, Executive Director of Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity. "Without the wonderful support we've received over the years from local businesses like Harbor Freight Tools, we would never have been able to achieve our mission of building hope in our community by helping Cache Valley residents take ownership of decent, affordable homes."
Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) is the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, housing ministry that has built over 400,000 decent, affordable houses and served more than 2 million people around the world. Habitat houses are affordable for low-income families because the homes are modest, energy efficient and no interest charged on the mortgage. Habitat for Humanity began working in the Logan area more than 20 years ago, and Cache Valley Habitat for Humanity was established as an independent affiliate in 2005.
